A Spirited Journey
In June 2022, Zara will be undertaking her second philanthropic filming project, shooting a short documentary over 10 days while climbing the world's highest freestanding mountain in the world at 19,340 feet - Kilimanjaro.
Our trek takes us through dense tropical rainforest, moorland and scree until we reach Uhuru Peak, the highest point in Africa. This is one of the most challenging treks at altitude, climbing one of the most impressive mountains in the world.
Its snow-capped summit rises high above the dusty African plains and huge permanent glaciers flow down through gullies, spectacular views and beautiful ice formations are the rewards for pushing your limits both physically and mentally.This is a tough trek which follows the beautiful Machame Route, approaching Kilimanjaro from the southwest.
